some mining assets in the united states and south america as well. but what the u.s. oil and natural gas assets bring to the table, in addition to commodities, is well outside freport's existing portfolio of business, is a reduced level of country risk, especially compared to what you undertake when you do business in indonesia or the d.r.c. >> tom: just a half minute left, and i want to ask you about the stock for freport mac moran, how should long-term investors take a look at this? >> well, long-term investors that had been sitting in freport original need to ask themselves are you really interested in this oil and gas story. because you need to remember investors to have undertaken this deal on their own. they didn't need freporto go out and lever up and pay a 39% premium for planes. >> tom: dan, do you own freport? >> i do not. >> tom: daniel rohr with us, he is with morningstar. >> reporter: i'm erika miller in new york. tomorrow, we'll talk to the c.e.o. of kitchen chain sur la table and hear his outlook for holiday spending. >> susie: finally, we want to remind you about a sp

south and see what america america was like at that time in that part country. and deal-- now, i want to do it in an entering way, and me the way to do that is to do it as a genre pies because it seems like most of the time-- whenever it has been dealt with, at least in the last 30 years or 40 years, it's been either historical with a capital "h" which i think kind of put it at an arm's distance, kinds of puts it a little bit under class, to observe and here are the facts. and we all know the facts, more or less, or there's been movies like, "mandingo" or "good-bye uncle tom" which in many ways i think are much clorls to the truth than the capital "h"movies. so i wanted to do it like a-- an exciting western adventure. and as genre movie first that uses slavery and the antebellum south as a backdrop in order to tell this adventure. and the adventure he was down with and i was down with is of a black male rising up, becoming a cowboy, becoming a spaghetti western here oh, becoming a folkloric here oh, and goes out and saves his woman. she's in the pit of hell, and he's going to go and e

, recalibration is under way. listen to south carolina senator and tea party leader jim demint. >> one of the mistakes i think the republican party made the last two years is trying to make obama the issue without sharing with america bold reform ideas that get people inspired to get behind us. gwen: demints surprise solution? to get out of the senate and set up shop at the conservative heritage foundation. is this about just jim demint, or something larger, amy? >> we can probably see a little bit of both. you're right, jim demint is the de facto leader of the tea party, but the tea party really isn't a movie -- movement either. it's a leaderless sort of entity. he's been a thorn in the side for leadership and for the establishment republicans for quite some time. whenever boehner is the control for what he see is has compromise or caving, he stands up. he's been involved in a lot of interparty fights. most successfully, marco rubio. he beat charlie crist in a primary and one of his biggest failures is christine o'donnell. he's not afraid to get into the mix and we -- he didn't want t
